: : Yeah, you can tune the 4 string, but...doesnt that get annoying, and if you tune one string to be equivelent with the 5th...dont you lose that string? so you are just stuck with a 4 string still, and what if you needed that string or something. i dunno.
: hey man, as you can see....everybody has got an opinion. personally all i play is four strings. but thats me. if you are a beginner and are looking for that one bass that stands out and says, "I am the bass for you", then you need to go to your local music store
: and play as many basses as you can get your hands on. And talk to the sales person about this. if he cares he will help you out. if he lookin to sell "whatever", then look for another sales man....or store for that matter. by the time you are ready to buy that bass there should be no doubt
: in your mind what you want. believe me....you will know.....john.....one more thing.....if you are looking to play the bands that turn you on, then look at the bass players and what they play.chances are you will be turned on to bass more and enjoy what you will be learning to a much greater extent.
